Confluence Rapid

Rapid Details

Name Confluence Rapid
Class III to IV

Just above the confluence with of the middle and north forks is a sizable rapid.  Most of the water from Greenwood down to here is mainly class II with the exception of a class V portage just below mammoth bar.  If you do float down to here, this rapid has a chute on the right and then a very small pool with most of the current going down a chute on the left.  Hard move is to get from right to left in time.


Scout river right.
